cargo side window defrost not working

Hello all, I'm new here so i hope i'm in the correct forum for this. I have a 2002 WJ Limited that was assembled in Austria. The cargo area passenger side window has an electric defog/defrost (heated wires like rear window) that is not working. I can pull down the head liner enough to see that the wires com from a black box (about 1"x3"). I dont want to crack the headliner by pulling too much but, is this box just a junction or would it have a fuse or something in it that controls the power the this defog circuit? The rear window and mirror defog works fine. Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

If your Jeep is A European origin model the wires in the glass should be for the Antenna for the radio !!

I also have an Austrian build WG and in the beginning was asking myself why i only had the heating on the right hand aft window............. Then i discovered that it was indeed the integral antenna. The black box is an amplifier.
